Babycakes Nyc New York Reviews
Gluten free at its finest Feb 27, 2010
Tracy and I had visited Babycakes on a 10pm craving run around the lower east side. We got a chocolate cupcake and a red velvet cupcake and they were nothing short of TERRIBLE!
When my friend Joyce wanted to get a cake from here for her parents, I warned her against it having experienced how terrible everything tasted, but she bought a vanilla cupcake and a carrot cake cupcake to try anyway.
Turns out BabyCakes makes 2 different types of gluten-free cupcakes. One is simply gluten free, and the other one is spelt-made, which means not only gluten free but dairy free, egg free and soy free. Tracy and I likely had spelt cupcakes, whereas Joyce was more careful and got just the healthy gluten-free ones. They were DELICIOUS! Especially the regular vanilla one! And the frosting was great too! Not too sweet but very yummy nonetheless.
It's pretty pricey, with cupcakes about $3 each and a small cake costing about $70. But for those who can't tolerate gluten, this is a GREAT find.
